Most families find the first birthday party for their child quite important, actually they consider it a stone in the life of the baby and with good reason. It basically marks the very first year that their baby is in existence.
There are many changes that the baby went through during that very first year and parents have definitely not noticed those changes. The weight is increasing, many times it actually triples and the toddler learns so much about their surrounding environment.
This is why the first birthday party should be one that will not be forgotten. It should be a fun one with many decorations, balloons and things that make the party party shiny and bright. Babies love primary colors as they are stimulated by them, so having bright colored plates and streamers and balloons is a great way to form additional neural connections in the brain of the child.
The child will receive many gifts during the party and these results should really be a symbol of the ongoing development of the toddler. Educational toys and games are very good for enhancing the learning abilities of the kid and you can easily find educational themed supplies at various toy stores around the town.
Babies of one year of age are already crawling or even walking a bit, so it is important to have enough cushioning in the area for them to be safe of bumping into any sharp edges or places that can hurt them. The room should be safe for crawling and walking and having the baby close to stairs should be avoided.
Also the baby will still be using diapers, so you need to make sure that even during parties, if the diapers of the child are becoming soiled, they need to be changed right away to avoid any diaper rashes or other skin irritations.
